Gameburger Studios is literally changing the game with 11 Champions™. This slot will be released exclusively by Microgaming on the 2nd of June 2020 and is sure to delight Football fans the world over. But its technical expertise, incredible graphics, and great gameplay will appeal even to players with no special passion for The Beautiful Game.
Players will be able to enjoy a very entertaining base game along with a stellar set of special features in 11 Champions™. These include a Customisation option that allows team colours to be chosen, and a Pick Bonus with Grand, Major, Minor, and Mini Jackpot prizes. Then there’s the Horizontal Action Reel™ and the Blazing Wild Streak™, 2 completely new pokies mechanics.
When spinning the reels, players can get a taste of what standing in the centre of a field in a massive stadium must feel like. Set at the Euro 2020, players will be in charge of a team of sportsmen dribbling the ball, passing it along, and shooting for the goal on 20 fixed paylines, 5 reels, and 3 rows.
A Match Made in Casino Heaven
Gameburger Studios is the brains behind 11 Champions™. They’re a very new studio with an exclusive deal with Microgaming, developing content for the powerhouse alone.

Let’s Get to Brass Tacks
The biggest possible payout in this slot is a hefty 5 000X Multiplier for the bet active when it triggers, and the wagering range is large enough to suit most players’ pockets. The minimum and maximum stakes are 0.2 and 50, so everyone’s sure to find a total they’re happy with.
11 Champions™ is classified as a high-volatility slot and it boasts a good RTP of 95.93%.
For the Love of the Game
This is slot with a twist, and then some! Players will be moving their team members around the field thanks to the innovative mechanics delivered by Gameburger Studios, with positions on the reels getting framed as this happens.
In terms of audio settings, players will be made to feel like they’re actually at a packed arena watching a game unfold in front of them. Video sequences activate whenever a winning combination forms and when these are bigger than usual it looks like coins are pouring out of the bottom of the screen!
The Wild symbol is easy to spot thanks to the word being clearly written across the icon and it can appear Stacked on full reels and do so on more than 1 at the same time. The payouts in the base game are not that high, but that’s because of the potential all the extra features hold.
Starting with the least valuable symbols, the gloves will Multiply active bets by 3.75X and the boots will do the same but by 5X. Then there’s a gleaming medal, bringing with it a wager increase of 7.5X and the top icon is the shirt emblazoned with a No. 7. This will Multiply stakes by 8.74X.
The special features in 11 Champions™ are launched when a Champion attachment appears on one of the game’s symbols on the reels. It first appears on the bottommost one, in the middle, but then it shifts, moving according to what kind of winning combinations land.
The Blazing Wild Streak™ is affected by the Horizontal Action Reel™, and there are 4 possibilities at play. A blank blue field coming up keeps the sportsman where he is, but the orange button allows him to Pass. This moves him somewhere more remote than where he is at first, whereas the red field sees him shifting to an adjacent position as he Dribbles. The green field is the 4th option and will activate the Blazing Wild Streak™ which brings many Multipliers with it.
In the Blazing Wild Streak™, players will get a free respin and all those positions on the reels that got framed because the athlete moved during the Horizontal Action Reel™ feature? They will transform into Wilds. What’s more, any payline wins occurring here are subject to the Multiplier that the Shoot symbol displays.
The Pick Bonus game is how players can get their hands on 1 of the 4 Jackpots. They’ll see a screen with 12 cards, face-down, displayed and will be asked to choose 3. Each card is linked to a Jackpot and if the player finds all 3 of the same type that win will be awarded. Now that’s a real score!
